Must see, Masterful, Smart, Great staging, Brilliant

See it if you can. There is truly nothing like it, with its amazing visuals, sense of drama & great personal content. You'll be surprised & moved.

Don't see it if you think theater requires linear storytelling and predictable staging. Also, if you hate stroboscopes.

Masterful, Original, Profound, Jaw-dropping, Must see

See it if you want to be truly transported inward. This piece is an experience to behold. You will wonder what is real, and you'll need to recover.

Don't see it if you might be averse to loud sounds and bright lights; discombobulation is the point here. What a ride, though! Get on the ride!

Time Out New York
March 21st, 2016

"Visually gorgeous prediction of what will happen when the machines take over, Andrew Schneider's stunning 'Youarenowhere' is a tour de force—both of acting and design...Connoisseurs of process-oriented, short-form programming may have seen this work in snippets, but this is your first chance in a very long time to see a completed Schneider. Getting to see what his wicked, febrile mind has been up to is thrilling and happens but once a half-decade. It's like Brigadoon, people. Don't miss it."

"I can't tell you what happens except to say that it is enormous, one of the biggest coups de théâtre I've seen in years, and it radically reorients one's perspective on everything that has come before. Beyond that, all I can tell you is that 'YOUARENOWHERE' is baffling, but not boring; that Andrew Schneider is a fearless and technically gifted performer; that the technical/design aspects of the production are executed with a rare precision; and the entire experience is not easily forgotten."

Theatre is Easy
March 24th, 2016

"'YOUARENOWHERE' is artistically complicated and aesthetically striking...Technological cleverness aside, 'YOUARENOWHERE' contains moments of astounding and confusing beauty that come from the pace, timing, physicality, expression, and the presence of Schneider as well as other performers...It's an achievement that Schneider and his creative team are able to invent 'YOUARENOWHERE' not only as a theatre piece but as a place, a space, and an experience that is uncanny."

Theater Pizzazz
March 31st, 2016

"Using on-stage cues and technological manipulation unparalleled in American theater, the experimental performance piece 'YOUARENOWHERE' is back. This time with infinite more megawatts that take the already transcendent show to an-out-of-this-galaxy level. Unlike, the constant whispers of computer fans or lights, the show is anything but static...Schneider’s matter-of-fact style and absolutely sharpened physical poise guides us."

Stage Buddy
March 28th, 2016

"'YOUARENOWHERE' is reminiscent of the best of David Lynch….Impressions on the selectivity of love and the taking for granted of our perceptions on alternate and interior worlds manage to achieve mathematical and philosophical coherency as well as a sense of humor. Besides the sonic and visual accomplishments, Schneider's physical theater precision is mesmerizing. At the show's crescendo, he achieves a tour de force that is best experienced with no prior knowledge of it."

New York Theater
April 2nd, 2016

"What Andrew Schneider achieves on stage leaves theatergoers as astonished as 19th century audiences must have felt watching Lumière’s 'Arrival of the Train'...The perception-altering surprise is so satisfying, I wouldn’t want to do anything to ruin it...Some theatergoers might not get past the show’s bells and whistles to grasp the meaning behind any of Schneider’s words, and that’s okay...His technical know-how is on full display in 'YOUARENOWHERE', with intentional sensory overload."

The Huffington Post
March 24th, 2016

"Since Schneider remains at a high compulsive level throughout the 60-minute-plus piece, what he’s actually intending to get across may be less important to him than the agitated state into which his message has plunged him...But if his observations are deliberately blurred, then it becomes incumbent on him to command consistent attention no matter where his digressions take him. Sorry to say, he runs out of steam a little too often...Let's just say, 'YOUARENOWHERE' is relatively engaging."

Theater In The Now
March 21st, 2016

"'YOUARENOWHERE' is a sensory overload that not only works, it is emotionally cumbersome...'YOUARENOWHERE' is not only magical, it's mystifying. To discuss what happens in Schneider's piece would be a complete disservice to any future audience. It would do nothing but spoil your experience. But what can be analyzed is Schneider's ability to craft something provocative...'YOUARENOWHERE' defies the impossible. This is not a show for the faint of heart."
